This program will not operate in FY2021 due to COVID-19 as services are offered in person. We have applied for funding for FY2022 and hope the program will be able to resume operations once vaccination rates are up, infection and hospitalization rates are down, and in-person services can be safely offered again.
This scorecard holds the semi-annual and annual performance measures for reporting purposes for the Pop Up Youth Drop In Center Program in Anne Arundel County for FY20 and Beyond.
The Pop-Up Youth Drop In Center operates two days a week at the Brooklyn Park Library offering basic needs, systems navigation, programming and other services in a location that is familiar and friendly to youth – meeting them where they are, both literally and figuratively.
Unaccompanied homeless youth (who are frequently disconnected youth) aged 18-24 in North County.
Recruitment is done through street outreach and networking. Many youth are also identified and referred through the public library staff, Community of Hope partners, and the local COC.
